This is my day so I got to open Day 13 from Robyn which is a treat! You'll read about it on Christmas day since the other swappers won't be opening it until their day.
A plug for my sister, Richey, who has a shop on Etsy, Items of Interest by Richner, and makes cute bags, towels, and magnets, which is where I got my idea to use bags last year and this.
I made these but her bags make great place cards for weddings, little gifts instead of a card and for about the price of a card. Filled with candy or little treats -oh, so fun!
My friend Sue showed me how to make these at our craft workshop at church.
They have a lot of uses. You could attach them to a potluck dish with your name or what your dish is, you could use them as a gift tag, make a banner with a bunch of them....
Being a shrinky dink lover and wanting to use a stamp from Suzanne at Quietfire Design I decided to adorn the chalkboard with this one. She has a mini- stamp of this quote so they are teeny tiny-maybe a 1/2 inch.
I purchased chalkboard ornaments and cut the hanger off, used a Krylon gold leafing pen and outlined the boards. The clothes pins are covered with Washi tape. (I love the pink and black chevon and I'm not a pink kinda girl)
I ordered a batch of this leaf garland and attached self-adhesive puffy hearts. I've used a sheet of probably two hundred of these for a zillion projects over the last 5 or 6 years.
The garland and quote were hot glued on as was the board to the clothes pin.
